Exciting news at the Tukwila Pool

The Tukwila Pool has some exciting things going on this spring you do not want to miss.

Did you know that you do not have to be a resident of Tukwila to receive free swimming lessons, regardless of your age?

The pool has been awash with new swimmers taking advantage of our grant for free swim lessons. If your child qualifies for free or reduced lunch program at school, or you meet the income requirements, then you and/or your child can take free swim lessons, thanks to Kaiser Permanente. Please visit the website at www.tukwilapool.org for more information, or give us a call at 206-267-2350.

Can’t afford a swimsuit? Contact Michelle Simpson, director of Aquatic Operations at the pool or email her at msimpson@tukwilapool.org.

Did you know that your Tukwila Pool has special events every third Saturday of every month? You wouldn’t want to miss our April event, held from 1-3 p.m on April 21. This is a free event and it is all about water safety. Come learn how to kayak, put a lifejacket on correctly, and get free lessons on how to be safe around water.

See you at the pool!

Michelle Simpson is director of aquatic operations at the Tukwila Pool.
